We've had a few themed price drops lately, but this week there doesn't appear to be any overwhelming consistency, so we decided to bring you the best random price drops. It's a little of this and a little of that. A little something to share and to make your season bright.
If you use Thunderbird, you’re probably used to getting by without the bells and whistles –– or price tags –– of other, flashier mail clients. Who needs ‘em anyway, even for important operations like migrating to a new Mac or Thunderbird installation? Even if you don’t use Time Machine to back up your Mac’s drive, it’s easy to back up and restore your Thunderbird messages.
You probably use Outlook for business, which makes it doubly important you save every message when moving to a new copy of Outlook on another Mac or after reinstalling OS X. Fortunately it’s easy to do even if you don’t use Time Machine or another method to back up your Mac’s drive.

When sending to multiple recipients, the result will be a “copy” of an email addressed to “undisclosed-recipients” and a “Bcc” line with all the addresses the email was sent to.
One day, not so very long ago, third-party email apps dominated the Mac platform -- until Apple upped the ante with its own Mail application (frequently dubbed “Mail.app” for clarity) included free with every copy of Mac OS X.
